MICHELIN Guide Hotels in Dubai with Amazing Pools

A curated list of must-try pools in some of Dubai’s most beautiful stays.

Lounging around and being lazy under the sun is what many travellers look for during their holidays. Taking time off doesn’t always mean you’re running around, following a strict itinerary of tours and sightseeing, it can also be meant for simple relaxation and being catered to hand and foot, especially after a hectic period at work or even away from the kids. One of more sought-after amenities at hotels is their swimming pool. Whether it’s an escape in a city or a beach vacation, pools tend to be one feature that makes or breaks a traveller’s decision to book in that specific hotel.

Luckily, in Dubai, swimming pools are a must in every five-star hotel and resort. But how does one choose which hotel or resort has the best and most amazing pool? In order to answer that, we must first ask: what makes a pool amazing? For us, it’s design and location that help it stand out more. In a pool of special MICHELIN Guide stays across the city (pun intended), we’ve chosen five hotels in Dubai’s MICHELIN Hotels selection that offer some of the most amazing swimming pool.
